Formulation E keep away from F1-style controversy which noticed Lewis Hamilton lose title after race is ended behind security automotive

FORMULA E avoided an F1-style controversy in the Middle East after the Round 2 race in Saudi Arabia was ended behind the safety car.

Unlike bungling F1 race director Michael Masi, who fudged the outcome of the Abu Dhabi GP, his opposite number at the all-electric series, Scot Elkins, stuck to the rules as the race ended under yellow flags.

Swiss racer Edoardo Mortara held on to win his third ePrix for the Venturi team, whose CEO, Susie Wolff is married to Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff.

Mortara said: “I am glad to bring the win to the team and I have now won three races.

“This was a strategic race. It was difficult for the nerves because I didn’t have much battery energy.

“It was the same for my colleagues around me, who tried to put me under pressure. But I tried to keep my head cool and it worked.”

The Abu Dhabi debacle – which resulted in Sir Lewis Hamilton being controversially pipped to a record-breaking eighth F1 title by Max Verstappen – is still being investigated by the FIA.

A statement on Saturday read: “At this stage, no decision has been taken on the outcome of the detailed analysis currently underground into the events of the last Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“As previously announced, the findings of this detailed analysis will be presented at the F1 Commission meeting in London on 14th February after an open discussion with all F1 drivers and then finally have to be approved at the World Motor Sport Council meeting on 18th March in Bahrain, under the authority of FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.”

Hamilton, 37, has remained tight-lipped since the race and reportedly won’t decide his future until the outcome of the inquiry is known.

But Williams team boss Jost Capito recons the seven-time F1 king should make way for a younger driver.

Capito told German outlet RTL: “I don’t care about it.

“I don’t really care whether he drives or not. [It’s] totally irrelevant, really totally irrelevant.”

“They always say there are not enough places for young drivers and then I think, if someone has been World Champion seven times.

“He has actually done enough and could make room for a youngster, why not?”

The new F1 season, in which Dutchman Verstappen will bid to defend his controversially-claimed world title, will get commenced on March 20.

Collin Morikawa wins the Race to Dubai in fashion after DP World Tour Championship victory

The 24-year-old made five birdies on his final seven holes on Sunday and scored a round of 66 that put him -17 and three strokes ahead of the rest of the field.

Rory McIlroy had the lead until the final lap but shot a disappointing 74 to finish sixth in a tie.

Matt Fitzpatrick fired a six-under par 66 to move up the leaderboard and jeopardize Morikawa’s spot at the top of the leaderboard, but it was only enough for second place.

Morikawa didn’t need to win this week to win the Race to Dubai, especially as his closest rival Billy Horschel finished 32nd.

But he flipped the style on the track to secure his sixth professional win.

“It feels so good. I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t watching what Matt Fitzpatrick is doing today, and boy, did he take a run,” said Morikawa.

“It’s an honor. To put my name up against many, many greats in the Hall of Famers – that’s something special. I get touched just talking about it.

“The way my head is wired, I’m always on the lookout for what’s next. But I’ll try to enjoy this one. It’s something special, it’s the end of the year, I’ll enjoy it as best I can. “

It is the latest in an incredible run for the American over the past two years.

Morikawa also won the WGC Workday Championship earlier this year, which together with winning the Open played an important role in making him top the European Tour points list.

The only two events he played in Europe that year were the Scottish Open and then a week later at Royal St George’s, but the points offered for the majors and the WGC events meant he was that week at the DP Tour World Championship as leader of the Race to Dubai.

Morikawa also played a huge role in securing the Ryder Cup in the US, winning three and halving one of the four games he had played.

NASCAR wants “F1-style method” to race weekends

Hamlin said his newfound interest in Formula 1 came from several of his friends, who paid attention, and by watching Drive to Survive, a popular documentary series produced in a collaboration between Netflix and Formula 1, to take a look behind the scenes series.

“I think I probably watched more this year [F1] Run as I’ve had all my life. Part of this is being driven by social media. My friends agree to it. You can see that the American press is paying more attention to the subject this year, ”Hamlin said.

“Of course, when you see a buzz or see something about it on social media, you kind of want to tune in and see what’s going on. That sparked my interest in it, more than anything. “

Hamlin said his involvement with Netflix in a documentary about driver Bubba Wallace and his first season at 23XI Racing, which Hamlin owns with NBA legend Michael Jordan, also encouraged him to try Drive to Survive.

“It definitely got me to see how they did the production and it certainly came over with some good storylines,” he said. “Sure, I’m a person who will morph into this show over time.”

Hamlin, who continues to battle to win his first championship this year, said NASCAR needed to find a way to make its race weekends more of a “show” and take advantage of the more competitive races in NASCAR.

“It’s crazy because you probably have a 90% chance of choosing which two guys will win [each F1 race]. This year was a little different with the madness, but there are two people who can win, two teams that can win, ”said Hamlin. “There isn’t a lot of side-by-side racing compared to NASCAR, but the fans and media love it.

“When you talk about how critical the fans or the media or whoever our race might be in NASCAR, that’s amazing what’s going on right now. The show is good. Why can’t we get people to vote?

“Texas was just a big disappointment to see what was going on in the stands, and yet we’re talking about the largest crowd in history showing up for the COTA F1 race next week. So there is some kind of breakup that is not making this deal work. “

Of course there were several sold out and heavily attended NASCAR Cup races in the 2021 season, but the atmosphere that is created each weekend varies from track to track.

Several protocols remain in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting the number of people in garages and on the pit lane prior to the races. With the exception of eight race weekends in the Cup series, there was neither training nor qualifying this year.

Additionally, during the height of the pandemic, many sponsors reduced their on-track activation and not all returned to previous levels.

Hamlin believes NASCAR can learn something from how F1 can keep the “hype” around its events going even when the race is not as competitive on the track.

“I would love to see how we do a race weekend more F1-style and how we do hospitality, parties and all that stuff,” said Hamlin.

“There just has to be more to it than just showing up and racing like we’re doing right now.”

How Blue Origin, SpaceX, Virgin Galactic house race might influence the ambiance

Billionaire businessman Jeff Bezos will launch with three crew members aboard a New Shepard rocket on the world’s first unattended suborbital flight from Blue Origin Launch Site 1 near Van Horn, Texas on July 20, 2021.

The space industry is taking off after decades of stagnation.

Driven primarily by the rapidly evolving space programs of Elon Musk’s SpaceX and China, the world experienced 114 orbital launches in 2018 – the first three-digit number since 1990. This year, the orbital launches are slated to be for the first time since the 1970s. And that count doesn’t include Jeff Bezos’ most recent suborbital tourism trips Blue origin and Richard Bransons Virgo galactic.

Between planning NASA Moon return, SpaceX is constructing a massive “mega-constellation” of Internet satellite, China Crew of a space station and suborbital companies sending crews of tourists to the edge of space, launches could soon be the order of the day.

But will the new space boom have its price on the planet?

“While we obviously need space launches and satellites, when you think about things like space tourism, you think about the environmental impact,” says Ian Whittaker, lecturer in space physics at Nottingham Trent University in the UK

Researchers are trying to figure out how the Earth might respond to stronger clouds of smoke from rocket exhaust by examining the total mix of carbon dioxide, soot, alumina, and other particles that are collectively emitted by a spreading variety of rockets.

So far, the fledgling space industry is not seriously threatening the environment and likely has room for growth. However, it is unclear whether that will change as the new space race accelerates.

“I don’t think we know enough at this point to pinpoint exactly what this future should look like,” said Martin Ross, atmospheric researcher at The Aerospace Corp. “We just don’t have this information yet.”

Effects on carbon dioxide and climate change

As the world grapples with the move away from fossil fuels, the rise of a new industry – especially one with huge clouds bubbling out from powerful engines – could seem unsettling.

Most rockets emit more planet-warming carbon than many airplanes. A few minutes of weightlessness on the Virgin Galactic spacecraft will leave a carbon footprint comparable to flying business class across the Atlantic, and an orbital launch of SpaceX’s upcoming fully reusable spacecraft will emit as much carbon dioxide as one continuously flying an aircraft for about three years, according to a back-of-the-envelope calculation by Whittaker.

A spokesman for Virgin Galactic said the company is “exploring ways to offset carbon emissions for future customer flights.” While SpaceX did not comment directly on CO2 emissions, musk Has supports a CO2 tax Politics. Blue Origin has said its New Shepard missile uses carbon-free fuels like hydrogen and oxygen.

But there are far more commercial airplane flights than space launches – 39 million against 114 in 2018 – too many for the space industry to catch up in even the most ambitious of scenarios. Today missiles burn collectively approx. 0.1% as much fuel as airplanes, which makes their CO2 emissions compared to a rounding error.

Whittaker points out, however, that such calculations neglect the unknown, but likely substantial, carbon footprint of producing, transporting, and cooling the tons of fuel used in space launches

“While it doesn’t coincide with aviation, it’s still a great add-on,” he says.

To achieve carbon neutrality, he hopes the industry will follow Blue Origin’s lead and use carbon-free fuels as well as greener operations by producing fuel locally from renewable energy sources.

What missiles leave in the atmosphere

“If CO2 isn’t in the action, it’s the particles,” says Ross, who has spent decades studying the environmental impact of takeoffs.

The glowing flames that shoot out of a rocket’s engines indicate that when the vehicle burns, soot is produced, technically known as “black carbon”. Any rocket that burns carbon-based fuels like kerosene or methane injects these particles directly into the upper reaches of the atmosphere, where they are likely to circulate for four to five years.

There the growing layer of soot looks like a fine black umbrella. It absorbs solar radiation and effectively prevents sunlight from reaching the surface of the planet, similar to what is suggested Geoengineering schemes intends to temporarily cool the earth might work. Shiny alumina particles emitted by the solid rocket engines of NASA’s upcoming Space Launch System and China’s Long March 11 vehicle make the phenomenon worse by reflecting sunlight.

The effects of this unintended experiment are unknown – except that they could be significant. A simple simulation found by Ross and a colleague in 2014 that the primary cooling effect of dozens of rocket launches is already equivalent to the warming effect of carbon dioxide released by millions of commercial flights.

That’s not to say that the aerospace industry is offsetting the environmental impact of flying. Infusing the atmosphere with novel particles has complex effects, says Ross. For example, their rough model showed that rocket launches cooled some locations by 0.5 degrees Celsius, while they heated the Arctic by more than 1 degree Celsius. And the simulation didn’t try to include side effects, such as whether takeoffs would create clouds or kill. More sophisticated modeling could show that exhaust particulate matter exacerbates overall warming, says Ross.

Other emissions and ozone

Space launches also worry some researchers because rockets emit their exhaust gases directly into the stratosphere, home to the protective ozone layer that blocks harmful ultraviolet light.

Most solid rocket engines emit alumina particles and chlorine gas, which promote chemical reactions that break down ozone into molecular oxygen. SpaceX and Blue Origin have switched to liquid fuels, which are typically less harmful but still contain by-products, including water vapor and nitrogen oxides, which can break down ozone during the years they circulate in the upper atmosphere.

“They’re not harmless,” says Eloise Marais, an atmospheric researcher at University College London. “They have an impact on the atmosphere.”

Marais is working on a prediction of how the current portfolio of rocket fuels could thin the ozone layer in the not too distant future. She has explored the impact of current launches and a speculative scenario where space tourism is proving popular and reliable enough to support a few suborbital launches a day and an orbital launch every week.

The calculations need to be reviewed before release, Marais says, but preliminary results suggest that while today’s launches have little impact on ozone, a booming space tourism industry could begin to change that.

“The effect is big enough that we could worry if the industry grew beyond what we speculate,” she says.

How often the companies will start in the future remains uncertain. Virgin Galactic says it hopes to operate at some point 400 flights per year. SpaceX introduces itself Passengers with spaceship shuttle between major cities in less than an hour, competing with commercial airlines.

Balancing space advances with environmental concerns

Access to space has revolutionized weather forecasting, communications technology, and researchers’ ability to understand how human activities have changed the Earth’s climate. It has also enabled space-based facilities like the International Space Station and a fleet of space telescopes to conduct transformative basic research.

In the future, a thriving space industry could create practical projects from clean, space-based solar energy to Asteroid mining, as well as the search for life in the solar system and other scientific endeavors.

Researchers like Ross don’t want to stop this progress. Rather, they hope to make this possible by identifying potential environmental problems early on. Today’s embryonic space industry is largely harmless, and Ross suggests that an environmental research program could help keep it that way even at maturity.

Stratospheric aircraft could scan rocket clouds directly to learn exactly what they are spewing out, while satellites and ground-based observatories monitor the atmosphere for short-, medium- and long-term effects of take-offs. There is also the unknown effects of obsolete satellites “burning up” and throwing tons of metal particles into the upper atmosphere. Supercomputers could run extensive simulations to determine what levels and types of space activity can be safely conducted.

“We want to avoid a surprising future,” says Ross. “We would like to say that the space industry can now move forward sustainably.”

Bayview Mackinac Race ‘fashion judges’ plan for 20th race and you’ll be a part of

Veterans from Port Huron to Mackinac Race may recognize them, but newbies might be surprised to find the group of about 20 people in teal laminated nines and tens as they pass by.

These are the unofficial, “official judges,” a group of people who judge the crews on their uniformity and have fun, said Port Huron resident Jo Westphal.

“Yes, it’s unofficial, but for us it’s very official,” she said.

Westphal said this will be the group’s 20th year when it comes to racing team style. They are sitting in a grassy area south of the Black River, east of Desmond Marine. They put their chairs in the open space around 7am and then head to Maria’s Downtown Cafe for breakfast before returning to judge the parade of sailboats.

Elvis Presley will even make an appearance as the group has a life-size cardboard cutout of the singer that they will take to breakfast.

“If there is someone who would like to join us, there are no requirements!” Said Westphal. “I will have the numbers we have for the crews if they are uniform and if they are not they want to know why and we will tell them.”

Westphal said the only numbers she has are nines and tens. If the racing teams are all in uniform they get a 10. If someone isn’t, they get a 9. When the teams ask why they didn’t get a 10, the judges point to the person who is not wearing a uniform.

“And if they’re really bad, we don’t judge,” she laughed. “It’s really flat.”

Port Huron residents and Bayview Mackinac Race

There are people who have judged the race for years, like Port Huron-based Joanne Adair who has been doing it for 12 years, but they also encourage people sitting near them to take part.

“We pick up people who are down there to watch the boats and they really interfere,” she said.

Unfortunately, the group couldn’t judge the event last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Westphal said her cousin was putting up a sign saying “We’re back”.

Adair said she was looking forward to this Saturday and eager to see who’s coming. In the mornings there is a lot of activity and in the past a church group sat next to it and distributed donuts and coffee.

Westphal said the crews really appreciate your presence. They’ll clap and cheer and she even thinks a boat pulled a “U” turn to come back and get a 10 after the last crew member put on his uniform.

Usually the judges are ready by 11 or 11:30 am when most of the boats are out. They’re there to give a boost to the crews going into the St. Clair River, Westphal said.

To participate in the fun Saturday, “just show where our chairs are,” she said.

Participants should wear a teal shirt or tight color, and should bring sunscreen, jacket, sunglasses, and their own drinks. People with questions can call or write to Westphal at (810) 982-7277 or (810) 334-5583.

Greater than 600 runners race to boost cash for teenagers locally

ROANOKE, Virginia. – Runners celebrate July 4th by raising money for children in the community.

American National Bank and Trust’s 10th AnnualFour on the fourth“Run-Walk started on Sunday morning. It’s a four-mile race through downtown Roanoke and is presented by Fleet Feet Sports.

The money that is collected through entrance fees comes to the Southwest Virginia Boys and Girls Club. The organization provides summer camps, exercise programs, and academic assistance to children in Roanoke, Franklin, and Montgomery counties.

“We have had many children whose parents have had to go back to work and provide them with the support they need,” said Michelle Davis, CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Southwest Virginia.

This year, a record was broken with more than 600 runners taking part in person and virtually. After the 4-mile run, there was a free half-mile children’s run with over 100 children.

MotoGP, Taramasso: “Do the riders like exhausting tires? Extra leisure within the race.”

Michelin arrived at Assen with doubts about the new asphalt as they were unable to test it. But it went even better than expected as the track’s great grip enabled all the mixes to work optimally, so much so that manager Piero Taramasso I didn’t expect that many drivers would choose the hard tire.

“Yesterday, during FP4, I said that I was surprised to see so many riders trying the hard rear tire and that I didn’t think they would choose it for the race. The reason is simple. Soft and Medium performed well with no wear issues. The drivers often prefer aggressive decisions so we thought they would orient themselves by these“, Piero explained to us.

Instead, many drivers seem to prefer the hard tire.

Even the tough ones showed it worked well. It works on the bikes that need more stability“, Taramasso continued. “After all, we have been saying since the beginning of the weekend that thanks to the new asphalt, all the tires are working well. You can race with all options. I think we’ll see several opportunities during the race. It’s no surprise that the hard tire can be a good choice for the race. Fifteen drivers chose this mixture for the GP two years ago. We know it works well. “

This is not the first time that a less attractive tire on paper has proven to be the right choice for some drivers

I was surprised here as I was in Barcelona when Oliveira took the hard front and then won the race. This is all good news for us. The more specific these seem, the better it is for entertainment, because you can see different strategies,” he concluded.

Neon Race raises cash for literacy help in Milford

News 12 employees

Updated on:June 13, 2021 at 2:03 pm EDT

The Neon Race for Literacy Volunteers of Southern Connecticut returned on Saturday after being canceled due to the 2020 pandemic.

More than 100 people signed up this year to run the 5K and raise funds for the nonprofit that offers free services to anyone who wants to learn English and improve their skills.

The eight parties, including a small Arab faction that makes history by sitting in the ruling coalition, agree on their opposition to Netanyahu and new elections, but otherwise disagree on little. You are likely to have a humble agenda aimed at relieving tension with the Palestinians and maintaining good relations with the US without starting major initiatives.

Netanyahu, who is on trial for corruption, remains the leader of the largest party in parliament and is expected to vigorously oppose the new government. If only one faction breaks down, it could lose its majority and be in danger of collapse, giving it the opportunity to return to power.

The deep divisions in the country became clear when Bennett addressed Parliament before the vote. He was repeatedly interrupted and loudly harassed by followers of Netanyahu, several of whom were escorted out of the chamber.

Bennett’s speech dealt mainly with domestic issues, but he spoke out against US efforts to revive Iran’s nuclear deal with the world powers.

“Israel will not allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” said Bennett, promising to maintain Netanyahu’s policy of confrontation. “Israel will not be a party to the agreement and will continue to maintain full freedom of action.”

Bennett thanked President Joe Biden and the United States for their decades of support for Israel.

Netanyahu, speaking after him, vowed to return to power. He predicted that the new administration would be weak on Iran and give in to US demands to make concessions to the Palestinians.

“If we are destined to be in the opposition, we will do it with our backs straight until we overthrow this dangerous government and return to run the country our way,” he said.

Yohanan Plesner, president of the Israel Democracy Institute, a bipartisan think tank, said the new government will likely be more stable than it appears.

“Even if it has a very narrow majority, it will be very difficult to overthrow and replace it because the opposition is not sticking together,” he said. Every party in the coalition will want to prove that it can deliver, and that takes “time and success.”

Netanyahu “will continue to cast a shadow,” said Plesner. He expects the new opposition leader to take advantage of events and propose laws that right-wing coalition members want to but cannot support – all to embarrass and undermine them.

The new administration, meanwhile, promises to return to normal after two tumultuous years of four elections, an 11-day Gaza war last month and a coronavirus outbreak that devastated the economy before being largely brought under control by a successful vaccination campaign.

The driving force behind the coalition is Yair Lapid, a political centrist who will become prime minister in two years if the government lasts that long.

He canceled a planned speech in front of parliament and said he was ashamed that his 86-year-old mother had to watch the noisy behavior of his opponents. In a short speech he asked for “forgiveness from my mother”.

“I wanted her to be proud of the democratic process in Israel. Instead, like all citizens of Israel, she is ashamed of you and remembers exactly why it is time to replace you, ”he said.

The new government is expected to receive a slim majority in the 120-member assembly and then be sworn in. The government plans to hold its first official meeting this evening.

It is unclear whether Netanyahu will leave the official residence. He attacked the new administration in apocalyptic terms, accusing Bennett of defrauding voters by running as a staunch right-wing extremist and then collaborating with the left.

Netanyahu’s supporters have held angry protests outside the homes of rival MPs who claim they have received death threats naming their family members. Israel’s internal security agency Shin Bet issued a rare public warning of the incitement earlier this month, saying it could lead to violence.

Netanyahu condemned the incitement while also pointing out that it was also a target.

His place in Israeli history is secure after serving as prime minister for a total of 15 years – more than anyone, including the country’s founder, David Ben-Gurion.

Netanyahu began his long reign by opposing the Obama administration and refusing to freeze settlement as it tried unsuccessfully to revive the peace process. Relations with Israel’s closest ally became even more difficult when Netanyahu fought vigorously against President Barack Obama’s emerging nuclear deal with Iran, and even denounced it in a speech to the US Congress.

But he suffered little or no consequences from these clashes and was richly rewarded by the Trump administration, which recognized controversial Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, helped broker normalization deals with four Arab states, and withdrew the US from the Iran deal .

Netanyahu has portrayed himself as a world-class statesman, boasting close ties to Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has also cultivated ties with Arab and African countries that Israel long shunned because of its policies towards the Palestinians.

But it was received far more coolly by the Biden administration and is widely viewed as undermining the long tradition of bipartisan support for Israel in the United States.

At home, too, his reputation as a political magician has faded, where he has become a deeply polarizing figure. Critics say he has long pursued a strategy of divide and rule that has widened the divide between Jews and Arabs in Israeli society, as well as between its close ultra-Orthodox allies and secular Jews.

In November 2019, he was charged with fraud, breach of trust and taking bribes. He turned down calls for resignation and instead hit the media, the judiciary and law enforcement agencies, accusing his political opponents of orchestrating an attempted coup. Over the past year, protesters began holding weekly rallies across the country urging him to step down.

Netanyahu remains popular with the hardline nationalists who dominate Israeli politics, but he could soon take on a leadership role within his own party. A less polarizing Likud leader would have a good chance of forming a coalition that is both more right-wing and more stable than the government that is to be sworn in.

Many racers told News 12 it was the perfect weather for a race.

Expectations for the forged of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” 6 | Leisure Information

Racers, start the engine! RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 6 has a cast you’ve never seen before. Most queens will be in season 7th or lower RuPaul’s Drag Grace, All Stars This once underrated diva will have the chance to put her name back on the map.

Here’s what to expect from this Queen’s group:

Not a clear front runner

Shay Coolie won All Stars From 5 seconds she entered the work room. There is no such queen. All Stars 6 was supposed to win the original season but suffered a shocking loss in the last minute. This lack of front runners will probably change with the start of the season and hierarchies will inevitably arise. Former finalists Akeria C. Davenport, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Eureka O’Hara and Ginger Minj soon became the top contenders.

Print of the preseason

Since its humble premiere 12 years ago, RuPaul’s Drag Grace Wir has steadily gained a large number of passionate viewers. Contestants Kylie Sonic Love, Pandora Box, Yarra Sophia and Jigley Caliente will be featured in the first season from 2010 to 2012 and will be featured by many. Drag Racing First Fan All Stars 6. According to Season Two Contestant Kylie Sony Club, “I’m from a previous season so girls can underestimate me … if they underestimate me, I’ll tell them. I feel sick. “Will these veteran queens break the pattern of early athletes who did not get into the Drag Racing Hall of Fame?

Lipstick drama

Since then all stars 2, RuPaul He gave the power to eliminate candidates to other queens and chose lipsticks on behalf of the queen who wanted to eliminate them. This can liven up the drama Not hide The segment in which lipstick will be selected. January 12th season jokes, “I’ve been confirmed as the season’s villain.” “I’m the darkest of the season, but not a bad guy,” says Jigley Caliente. With this dynamic line-up, an incredibly dramatic and shady season awaits.

Ru exemption forms

To all the stars, it doesn’t matter how well the competition works, but how the fans perceive it. Many athletes see in fandom, which is often cruel and judgmental of drag queens, that they dislike all the stars ”themselves. Upon entering All Stars’ workroom, Ra’Jah O’Hara said: But in season 11, Raja was just plain angry. Not all queens who were hated during the season regret their first run in drag racing. “When I watch season 11, I still love everything about me,” says Silky Nutmeg Ganache.
